I've been invited to participate in a panel discussion next Thursday at the J. Erik Jonsson Central Library in Downtown Dallas. The title of the event is Mean Business: Women in Comics. Heather Lowe, manager of the fine arts division, will be moderating it. Thursday, April 9, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. J. Erik Jonsson Central Library 1515 Young St., Dallas, TX 75201 4th Floor Performance Space

The four guests are: Iris Bechtol, Gallery Director and Adjunct Professor of Art at Eastfield College in Mesquite, TX Keith Colvin, owner of Keith’s Comics Taffeta Darling, media personality and host of the webshow “Fangirls” David Hopkins, writer, graphic novelist and co-host of Fanboy Radio’s “Indie Show”

It's not the first time I've spoken about women's issues in comics. But now, fortunately, I have a moderator and three other people to bounce around ideas. It should be a great discussion. If you're the kind of person who likes to discuss women in comics, welcome! We'll be on the fourth floor.
